J. Tomas is a pseudonym, I'll admit it up front, under which I publish gay YA fiction. I write gay erotic romance as J.M. Snyder and publish non-gay fiction and poetry as J.T. Marie. You can email me at

So who am I? A writer, a reader, a poet. A video game nerd ~ I heart Final Fantasy, Tomb Raider, and Legend of Zelda. A cat owner. A movie goer, music lover, boyband groupie. A queer author who remembers all too well the pains of high school, first love, and how it felt to ride the school bus when all the "cool" kids had their own car. Who knows what it's like to be different in a school of clones, to feel different, look different, act different.

Who wants to put those feelings down on paper so others know they aren't alone.

More specifically, I live in Virginia with two very spoiled cats. I run JMS Books LLC and Queerteen Press full-time, and I've always wanted to be a writer, so I write.
